Research on the Braess Paradox Makes the Top Story on physorg.com

I had a very enjoyable interview with a journalist late last week on my latest research which is on the negation of the Braess paradox as traffic increases. The article with interview is now online on physorg.com and appears as the top story today.

What is more fascinating than traffic, whether that of vehicles on congested urban roads, to data on the Internet, and even electric power flows?!

My paper on the topic was recently published in the journal Europhysics Letters and it cites the translation of the classical Braess (1968) paper from German to English that I did with Braess and my former doctoral student, Tina Wakolbinger, and that was published in Transportation Science in 2005.
